. Gladstone, like all growing cltlea,
has a story to tell which suggests the
call of the wild. In New. York the
horse cars furnish the big Joke. In
Portland there la much wonderment
over the fact that there are no owl
cars, and more wonderment because it
has been suggested that they be ea
tabllshed on a ten-cents-per-ride-basla.
In Oregon City there la wonderment
by some because the curfew la not
observed. But something happened
In Oladstone last Sunday that, has
New York, Portland and Oregon City
going to the discard. Earnest Slevera,
Guy LaSalle and John Slevers were
surveying streets when they saw a
strange animal. The animal had not
been indigenous to that section for
yeara. Investigation proved that it
was a covote a carntverous coyote.
The animal fled, but not any faster
than the aurveyors. Ifi up to New
York, Portland and Oregon City.

Chairman Harding called the meet

present were Messrs. 8tlpp, Andre sen,
Schuebel, Stevens and Tooze. Among
the citizens present who made sugges

The business management plan con-
jslsts of having the affairs of the
municipality governed the same aa the
business of a corporation. Under the
commission form there might be three
commissioners, each having charge of
a department of the city. Under the
buslnesa, or corporation form, the city
council would, act in the same capac
ity aa the board of directors of a bi
business, with the mayor occupying
the same position aa the chairman or
the board of directors. Mr. Schuebel
did not say he favored either of these
plans, but he merely suggested them
as a working basis.

Mr. Stipp said there was a sent!
ment that authority ahould be con

that one man or more should be given

clared that under the present charter
